In terms of rating this book, I would give it 3 stars as literature and 5 stars for its message. I could not be more impressed by the girl who is Malala and the life she has lived thus far. She fought for what is right in a local culture that did not allow it and was shot in the head for it. The fact that she continues to not only survive, but to fight for the right to education for children is beyond comprehension. She is a role-model to all of us and I am glad that she won the Nobel Peace Prize as that will help continue to keep the spotlight on her and her message.
